Break bad habits

I use an evidence-based approach combining hypnosis with proven behavioural techniques which  have an incredibly strong success rate.  One session may be able you need to break your habit for good!

Do you bite your nails?  Pull your hair?   

If you have a habit you want to stop, please get in touch!  I love working on habit breaking because I love seeing my clients experience such quick and powerful results. 

It's often said that "habits are a powerful thing". This is true - but it also means that installing new counter-habits can be just as powerful and can effectively stop bad habits in their tracks.

I offer a two hour session based on proven techniques with a strong success rate. Research has shown that the technique I use leads to an average reduction in habit frequency of 90% after just one week(Nunn & Azrin, 1977), rising to  99.5% after 6 months (Chambliss et al, 1998).  

"I've hardly pulled my hair since the session...  I feel calmer and almost like I never did it in the first place."

About Me

Mimi Fakhri BSc Dip. CBH GQHP

I am passionate about helping people who struggle with anxiety, worry or stress to reclaim their lives. I do this using a mixture of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), hypnosis and other evidence-based techniques (such as mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), matching the evidence about what works to your individual needs and preferences.

I am passionate about helping people learn tools and skills to help them help themselves. My aim is that you become your own therapist, not reliant on me.

I worked for over 15 years in corporate business, so I understand first hand the pressures of a fast-paced, pressure-filled environment and the difficulties of juggling this with family life.

I have an evidence-based philosophy, which means I believe you have the right to treatment which is based on sound scientific research. This means I keep up to date with the latest scientific research and my approach is based on the best up to date evidence.

I'm registered with with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and am a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABC), and am bound to their stringent Codes of Ethics.

It’s really important that you work with someone you feel comfortable with, so please feel free to call me for a chat so you can get a feel for how I could help (or, if you prefer, send me a message).

To find out more about whether cognitive behavioural therapy or hypnotherapy could help you, I offer a free, no-strings 15 minute telephone or Zoom consultation.
